recipe: BBQ Baked Chicken

now that i'm doing the self-employed thing....well, 8 days of working life left!  i will need to find more ways to scrimp and save until i start making money *lol*.  number one way is by cooking at home.  i like cooking and cook most of the time anyway but it is fun to do it on a tight budget because it forces you to get creative.  and we are trying to maintain our weight so being health-conscious is important to us as well. 

this BBQ baked chicken was super easy and light.  matt LOVES BBQ anything as long as it's sweet so i used a honey bbq sauce.  toss with a bunch of local summer veggies (zucchini, squash, tomatoes, red onions, carrots).  toss with olive oil and season well.  for a whole chicken, bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees to render the fat (this gives you crisp skin), then 15 minutes per pound thereafter for perfect chicken.
